Msport steering wheel problem

Hi
Took the car at the local dealer and they found out after software flash that the airbag of the steering wheel is one stage but the car is dual, now it show up airbag error and they canít fix it, is there a way to let the car think that the airbag is a single stage ? They say that when the previous owner made the retrofit he made some modification at the wiring.

No, you will need the correct airbag.

Yes, you can code it to be a single stage. I'd never do it but a number of people who apparently do not care as much about their personal safety as I do mine have done it. Never paid attention to the exact coding for that reason. It's most likely in the coding section.

Edit: I see you are in Italy and most (if not all) of EU has Single Stage Airbags. What are the last 7 characters of your VIN?
